Expo 2020 is more than just a conference; it offers massive potential for international companies seeking to capitalize on multi-billion-dollar opportunities in a region that is experiencing strong growth.
For Canadian businesses considering expanding into the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, Dubai is the ideal gateway to access this market of 3.5 billion people. With HSBC Bank’s long-established presence in the region, along with our recently launched $5.5 billion USD growth initiative to support the UAE’s strategy by financing businesses seeking to invest in sustainable and innovative solutions, now is the time to act.
This is especially true for companies working in the renewable energy sectors, notably solar, wind, hydrogen, nuclear fusion and others that will play an integral role in meeting global energy needs in a sustainable manner. Canada is using its pavilion at Expo 2020 to showcase companies in other key sectors like healthcare, cleantech and information and communications technologies.
For small and medium-sized enterprises looking to enter the UAE, they have a lot to gain in a country where 94% of the companies are SMEs that contribute to an economy estimated at $410 billion USD. Recognizing this, HSBC Bank has relaunched its Business Banking proposition here that will provide a wealth of services to thousands of companies across a broad range of sectors.
